Prelinger Archive Mashups

What happens when you make close to 2,000 ephemeral public domain films freely available on the Web? People make art and more films are born!

Originally recorded in about 1989, this was one of the first times using my Roland TR-707 rhythm composer and Fostex X-30 multitrack cassette recorder.
